Good Afternoon Skiers and Riders!
What. A. Day. Mother Nature has been very kind to Okemo as of late, both with all the new snow we’ve received in the last week, and then today with this incredible weather! We saw nothing but sunshine and smiles across our 667 open acres, and there’s still more than enough snow to go around!
We will be turning all 20 lifts tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with all 121 trails open for skiing and riding! Our Mountain Ops team will have the majority of our terrain groomed with fresh corduroy for your morning turns. Not to worry though, we still have some trails that are ungroomed with bumps and more challenging terrain for those who are looking to mix things up!
The forecast for this weekend is amazing. With temperatures in the mid-40s today, and more of the same expected tomorrow, the skiing and riding at Okemo is a can’t miss. Tomorrow calls for partly cloudy skies with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, much like today!
Lift access prices for tomorrow will be $103 for adults, $91 for young adults and seniors, and $78 for juniors and super seniors. Half day rates are $78 for adults, $69 for young adults and seniors, and $59 for juniors and super seniors.
Okemo Valley Nordic Center will be open today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with 17 km of Nordic trails and 13 km of snowshoe trails! Off the hill, we also have our Ice House at Jackson Gore open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. today with helmet and skate rentals available at the rink. We will also have our Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster and Snow Tubing lanes at Jackson Gore operating from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
If you’re looking ahead to this coming weekend and President’s Week, we still have some lodging available around the resort, but it is filling up fast! Don’t miss out on some great ways to ski and stay with friends and family over the holiday!
The Okemo Valley Nordic Center is having a huge blowout sale (30-50% off!) which runs through February 26th! Now is a great opportunity to score some phenomenal deals on top of the line gear!
Not only are there sales taking place in the Nordic world, but our Snowsports and Mountain Outfitters retail outlets are having the biggest sale of the season, too! Save up to 50% on select clothing and hard goods!
For any après enthusiasts, we’ve got you covered! Long Trail will be on special all day at the Sitting Bull, and Switchback will be on special at Siena! Swing by and grab a cold brew after a great day on the slopes!
Throw your gear in the car, and we will see you out on the slopes!

Mark Your Calendar!
Are you ready for a new way to paint the town? If so, come on down to The Okemo Roundhouse studio! Grab a drink, an apron and take a seat! Get ready to create a masterpiece! You don't have to be the next Monet to paint something wonderful at Paint & Sip. A local artist will work with you to help bring out the artist in you.
No experience necessary - a local artist will instruct you step by step through an original piece of art while you follow along with a cocktail! At the end of the night you'll take home a beautiful painting and hopefully a new found talent! All you need to bring is yourself! We provide everything: paint, canvas, brush and apron.
Come to the studio a few minutes early so you can grab a drink. We have a selection of beer, wine, and soft drinks for purchase at our in-studio bar! Okemo does NOT allow guests to bring their own alcohol.
Doors open at 6:45pm. Event is 7pm - 9pm. Roundhouse at Jackson Gore. The cost of this event is $50. Purchase early! Space is limited. Cash-only tickets may be available at the door if not sold out.
Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist. Make your way to the top and then ski down to the finish at the bottom. Grab your skis or snowboard, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun. Do you like first tracks? This events take place on Okemo and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public. What's not to like about that!
The activity is called “uphilling,” and it’s adding a whole new dimension of fun and purpose to winter recreation. Uphilling is a hearty winter workout, where participants ascend a ski slope using either snowshoes, skis with climbing “skins,” or running shoes with "microspikes". You might say it’s an activity that’s people-powered rather than machined-powered. For the Winter Wild series, participants go down the mountain the same way they went up – those on skis get to slide down the slopes.
Time - Check-in by 6:40 am, start at 7:00 am.
· $20 in advance
· $25 Day of Reg Fee
